TENS application for menstrual pain
It is possible to do without medication during the period and to relieve painful cramps by using the gentle electro-massage with a TENS device. Independent tests also show that TENS can lead to pain relief in moderate and severe menstrual pain.
A TENS machine transmits electrical impulses to the skin via electrodes, which block the pain transmission of nerves to the brain and stimulate the body to release endorphins. Endorphins are endogenous pain-relieving hormones. In addition, the TENS treatment also promotes blood circulation.

Please note when using TENS:
The intensity should be adjusted so that it is felt as a pleasant tingling sensation. The duration of the application should be approx. 40 minutes in order to be able to achieve a lasting reduction in pain. It also makes sense to switch programs every now and then.
